Oops, you're right again, Ms Sue.
The population increase for South America alone is more than 350%, but the question asks the population of all 6 continents.
So proceed as Ms Sue described, add up the populations in 1950 (a), and those of 2000 (b). Subtract (a) from (b) and divide by (a), the original back in 1950.
The percentage will be
((b)-(a))/(a) * 100%
I have more than 125%, check my calculations.
Is this how I would do this problem? What is the percent increase in the population for all six inhabited continents, excluding Asia, from 1950 to 2000? Add all of the 1950 populations together, add all the 2000 populations
Would this be correct? What is the percent increase in the population for all six inhabited continents, excluding Asia, from 1950 to 2000? total for 1950 - 965,000,000 total for 2000 - 2,251,000,000 2,251,000,000 - 965,000,000 =
A)What was the mean population of the six continents or land masses that were habitable in 2000? B) What was the mean population in 1950? C) What was the percent incease in the mean population from 1950 to 2000?
The population of six inhabited continents in 2000 was 6,279,000,000 and in 1950 it was 2,556,000,000. What is the % increase excluding Asia which pop. in 2000 was 4,028,000,000 and in 1950 pop. in Asia was 4,028,000,000?
The table shows the population of the larger U.S. cities. A. Construct a bar graph of the data. B. Describe how the population of San Diego changed from 1950 to 2000. C. Which city had the greatest percent increase from 1950 to
Pick a country of your choice that is experiencing population growth. find the most recent population count of the country you have chosen and the population growth rate of that country. Use that growth rate to approximate the
how do you convert 12.55 to percent? i get 1,255% is that correct? or should it be 125.5%? If the 12.55 is a decimal, then .1255 is the percent. Per Cent means "per 100". the math problem asked me to find the percent increase of
What was the percent increase in the mean population from 1950 to 2000? 1950 - 426,000,000 2000 - 1,046,500,000 DO I divide 426,000,000 by 1,046,500,000 which is 40.7%? No. First you find the difference in the mean population.
